My lemon tree produces enough lemons to feed the entire city. I simply can’t use that many lemons. Plus, our gate is broken which requires me to jump the gate, or the fence, to pick said lemons. That requires me to put on tennis shoes, which requires me to walk upstairs and find socks, which totally proves that I’m crazy lazy.
I’m okay with that.
Luckily, I had my lemon picker available tonight to go pick me some lemons. He picked two huge full bags, which hopefully he left just two lemons on the counter, and took the rest home. What can I do with all those lemons?
The lemon tree is pretty awesome though. I just wish the avocado tree would bloom. We moved in exactly a year ago and the last time it bloomed was when we were touring the home in March. More than a year ago. It has leaves on it. Where are my avocados? The lemons? Eh. I could do without. The oranges are great but it’s a PITA to juice all those oranges. The avocados? S and I would devour them. So of course the tree is not blooming. Ah well.
The sunset was amazing tonight. It probably had to do with all that nasty smoke that’s blowing up from San Diego. Luckily, my Grandparents were able to take their rescheduled flight for their vacation. I’m glad Hawaiian Airlines was able to work with us. They were on mandatory evacuation and had to reschedule their flight to deal with everything and Hawaiian Airlines customer service charged them $$ for it but when I was an evil person and took to Twitter and their Facebook, they reversed the charges. I’m happy that my Grandparents don’t have to worry about the extra money. They haven’t gone on vacation with their friends in years and I’m excited that they can go and not worry (as much). The fire is only 10% out but it’s away from their home at the moment so they should be fine.
I have to say that firefighters are amazing people. I’m so grateful to them.
So this sunset was super peaceful tonight.
I snuck over to Macy’s this afternoon. I had to double-check with my girlfriends that the stretchy ‘jeggings’ were okay to buy. They are the fasionistas and I am not. Luckily they gave me the approval. I needed some comfy shorts/pants to wear on our upcoming camping/RV’ing trip so I was happy to pick these up.
My baby, my 6yo, had his last field trip today. To the marine center, and then a picnic at the park in Laguna. I took a long lunch break today and drove down. ALL the parents show up and it’s so important that the kids see you there. I got to spend lunch time with him and then play on the grass.
A few of his friends joined in our game of catch and we had a great time playing around. I took off while the classes went down to the sand and made sand castles. It was too hot for that craziness!
A nice day ended with a BBQ at home, finishing off a little work, and watching the crazy kids do some Lego Video games. I have no idea what they were doing but they were having fun. The husband is playing poker with friends and I’m drinking wine and fiddling with my computer. Perfect Friday.
